Mubarak's 30-year rule

Facing the gravest challenge to his 30-year rule, Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak refused to step down on Saturday after mobs set fire to his ruling party's headquarters and state security buildings, stormed police stations and confronted armored military vehicles in defiance of a nationwide curfew.

As a general rule, our government should realize that any dictator in power for 30 years faces imminent overthrow. This should never come as a surprise to anyone.
